Taking place between April and May, the MRP (minimum reserve price), of this yacht for sale was set at $42,000,000.Galactica Star yacht interiorIn terms of layout, the four-deck motor yacht features a full-beam owner’s suite on the main deck, four double cabins on the lower deck and a VIP cabin on the bridge deck with a private lounge area. Delivered in 2013, her exterior design is from the drawing boards of Omega Architects and she has interiors by the British studio Bannenberg & Rowell. In total, she can accommodate up to 12 guests and 13 crewmembers.

Galactica Star has a range of 4,000 nautical miles when travelling at 14 knots and she can be powered up to a top speed of 28 knots thanks to her twin MTU 5,592 HP engines.Galactica Star yacht exterior
